Central Park-Facing Apartment Lists for the First Time in 60 Years

The 1960’s was full of culturally significant moments; The first men traveled to space, the civil rights movement ignited, Spider-man swung into the comics, and The Beatles were releasing catchy bops that would become classics. It was also the last time this historic Manhattan apartment was on the market.

After 60 years, Apartment 2C in New York’s extraordinary Kenilworth Building is available to purchase for $6.8 million. Built in 1908, the building itself boasts intimacy and luxury, highlighting white-gloved, full service for its residents. It’s prime location on the corner of Central Park West and 75th street offer residents access to the city’s best museums, restaurants and attractions.

Upon stepping over the threshold of the spacious residence, guests are privy to over 50 feet of Central Park’s expansive lawns. Rich history is highlighted through the unit’s details, including original moldings and oak floors. While teeming with elements of the past, it is easy to spot the pristine updates made for the modern homeowner. Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms offer more than enough space for multiple occupants. There’s also a living room with oversized windows, a formal dining area, and a library that has the potential to convert into a fourth bedroom. The master bedroom rests in the corner of the apartment, receiving southern and western exposure.

The historic Upper West Side apartment is listed with Sandy Gansberg and Karen Kelley of Compass.
